I'm in the market for a blu-ray player and was wondering if you guys have any recommendations? Is WiFi connectivity important in a player? Do you use it?
Is the Samsung BD-P3600 any good?
I can point you to 2 links which can help you decide:
Nikon D750; FM2; FG; 55mm Micro Nikkor; 28-300 VR; 70-200 VR; Nikon V1 + 10-30mm
you can play use it to play games, can watch dvd, BD, can surf net. you can transfer your photos, video(divx, mpeg, avi..etc...) from your laptop or PC via USB and play it on ps3.
but, if you only interested in watching movie, please ignore what i said. i am not a fan of Sony(even though i am alpha user) but i have to salute them for making ps3 such a powerful machine.

the PS3 can also be used to stream movies from your PC. you can download media server software like TVersity or PS3 Media Server, and you will be able to watch movie files on your PC using the PS3. you can also subscribe to podcasts and movie streams and watch it off the ps3.
register for a HK ps3 account, and you can download HK concert trailers, HD TV shows etc from the HK PS store. same with an US account too.
i'd go for the ps3 any day over an ordinary bluray disc player.
The PS3 is easily the best BR player out there.
How much is a full specs version these days? Not the slim down version. And where best place to get one? Thanking everyone in advance.
Sorry forget to say full specs PS3 with whatever freebies.
even the fat versions cannot play PS2 games..unless you have the old 60gb version. but then it's not such a big deal, right? why play PS2 games when you have the new games?
it's a "good to have feature", but quite useless to 99% of the general population.
USB ports also not a big problem, because all the controllers are bluetooth. USB ports used for external HDDs or other gadgets. i think 2 are sufficient. i still use a grand total of zero USB ports
